Uruguay opens historic diplomatic archives to Malvinas war veterans

Uruguay will open on Monday 21 January its diplomacy archives to that Malvinas war veterans can consult classified information referred to the South Atlantic conflict when Argentina invaded the Falkland Islands in April 1982.

Gonzalez Trejo plans to copy all the data reference to the 1982 war

The main hall of Uruguay’s Palacio Santos, seat of the Foreign Ministry

The decision to declassify documents with access to the Malvinas veterans was agreed following a request from the Argentine embassy in Montevideo on petition from Cesar Gonzalez Trejo who was president of the Malvinas Veterans Federation.

The embassy in Montevideo said in a release that the Malvinas veteran had requested ‘support’ to have access to the Falklands/Malvinas war documents in Montevideo for which he also asked for a scanner and a lap top.

According to the release Ambassador Dante Dovena accepted the request and helped the former combatant to achieve his goal.

Cesar Gonzalez Trejo is a Malvinas war veteran, as a former president of the Veterans’ Federation has made a name fighting for the rights of his comrades and is a first line militant of the Malvinas cause.

Ambassador Dovena confirmed that the embassy has provided the veteran with a scanner and a laptop so he can copy and register all the information he feels is of interest.

The release signed by the Argentine embassy advisor, Victorino Pirillo ends saying that the Malvinas Forum in Uruguay reiterates its support to Argentina’s standing sovereignty claim over the Malvinas, South Georgia and South Sandwich Islands and adjoining maritime spaces.

Uruguay during the South Atlantic conflict adopted a strict neutral position and from Montevideo the British marines captured at the beginning of the conflict were flown back to UK. Similarly at the end of the war hundreds of Argentine prisoners were channelled back to Argentina through Montevideo.

Public opinion in Uruguay was divided on the conflict, basically rejecting the use of force to solve disputes and particularly since it is a small country and the best and probably only defence is absolute abidance with international law.

Nevertheless it is no mystery that the Uruguayan navy and air force with their limited resources helped their Argentine peers.

So, what he's basically going to find out is that Uruguay helped the Argentines to kill British servicemen and attempt to (using international legal speech) ethnically cleanse the population presumably by piping them through Montevideo. Now they currently sort of support the sort of same sort of thing, kind of.

Will he be scanning those bits too? Will he be taking the scanner and laptop with him?

“when Argentina invaded the Falkland Islands in April 1982”
Error. Britain invaded Malvinas in 1833 but not Argentina in 1982.

@2 No, Malvinas doesn't exist. We couldn't have invaded a fictitious entity even if we tried with some crayons and paper.

However, in the real world, the Argentines invaded the Falklands in 1982 and got evicted by force. Now the Argentines are sour because they're a bit sh!t at everything... and riddled with poverty.

This has caused them to try to peddle a group delusion around south america about them invading an non-real abstraction of some islands, rather than deal with the cold reality.

Since the Argentine military junta was so busy killing Argentines, Uruguayan dictatorship under General Gregorio Álvarez “helping their peers” also played a part of that mass-killing. Since so much of the mass-killing of Argentines appeared to end with defeat of the Argentines in the Falklands, will be interesting to see if more information on Uruguayan military complicity with the fascist Argentine junta comes to light.

I can understand giving hin access to the information, but I think it's a bit of a cheek for him to ask for a laptop and scanner.

Once he as scanned this information, what then? Is he just going to foxtrot oscar with the laptop?

I don't believe he's thought it through.

On the other hand, nice native Amerindian name he has there...not! So we have a Spanish/Italian descendant of Europeans, wanting to steal more land, and not understanding that he got his arse handed to him.

I'm interested to know what his rank and job was during the illegal invasion and occupation. Was he 'bravely' holding weapons to the heads of women and children and threatening them?

In fact, I wonder what he did during the Dirty War? Throw nuns out of planes? Help disappear people?

It seems to me this is a pointless exercise, and a waste of time to try and grab a bit of publicity. Probably on La Campora's pay roll.

The Falkland Islands were first claimed by Britain in 1765 - Argentina did not inherit the islands from Spain - Fact.

Vernet had permission from Britain to set up a commercial enterprise on the Falklands before switching allegiance to Argentina - Fact.

While Vernet and his Argentine garrison were asked to leave, the majority of settlers chose to stay - Fact.

The 3,000 Falkland Islanders are part of a British Overseas Territory - they do not wish to become part of Argentina just like the Canary Islanders do not wish to become part of Morocco - Fact.

The fact is, Argentina has NO moral Nor legal claim to the Falkland Islands.

If you understood your history you might stop believing in propaganda and lies. The truth is out there:

It is accepted internationally that the archipelago is known as the Falklands when it is part of a text in English and Malvinas when a reference appears in Spanish language text. Alternatively, one can use Falklands/Malvinas or Malvinas/Falklands.

The Buenos Aires Herald usually ignores this protocol and in spite of employing English for its articles always uses the “Malvinas” name. Shame on them for their ignorance!

As far as the access to the Uruguayan archives are concerned I am not too worried. If Uruguay took a neutral position not much will appear that is embarrassing to either of the combating nations. However, if Uruguay's unofficial stance was to favour one side of the other then “the manure may hit the fan”!

Anyway 30 years have passed since the armed conflict and Britain has opened its archives to all and sundry - no damage was done! The present deterioration in British/Argentine relations is entirely due to the ranting and raving of la Kretina et al as Britain has done nothing to provoke Argentina's wrath except insist on the participation of the islanders in any conversations about the future of the archipelago.

If César González Trejo finds anything embarrassing to Uruguay I am sure he'll keep quiet about it. On the other hand, if he finds anything to the detriment of Britain he will milk it for all its worth.

Bit of a storm in a teacup, methinks!

I'm kind of surprised, and a little disapointed that a 'veteran' of the conflict has this same obsession as the rest of the malvinistas.
If he was a real 'veteran' or had seen combat, I think he would accept the defeat, and get on with his life.
Clearly the guy can't accept that they surrendered, or perhaps he feels guilty that he did not do enough (or anything) against the British forces when he had the chance?

I'm pretty sure that Galtieri's colleagues in Uruguay would not have endangered any potential future relations with the inevitable winner of this war, the UK, by enabling war crimes against her civilians or soldiers. Similarly UY knows that they live next to an unstable neighbor and had to play nice there too. UY may have intercepted communications between the occupying forces and w.r.t AR's well documented war crimes and human rights violations but I doubt we'll ever see it nor will this unrepentant apologist for the Dirty War likely disclose it and it will likely be nothing that we haven't heard before. I agree with Gordo @36 that this is a fishing expedition to find dirt on the UK to distract from the referendum and the islanders exercising the very fundamental human rights that Argentina then and now continue to want to deny to the islanders.

@15 So many questions about this guy. Why does he call himself by that funny name? Why doesn't he use his usual name - Peter Pan? Then we'd understand his association with Neverland. Did he ever go? Or did he only make it as far as Tierra del Fuego? What makes him a “veteran”? Is he old? Subject to the usual memory lapses? Psychoses? Shiny trouser seat syndrome? How come he's a “veteran” of a place that doesn't exist?
@25 I don't think so. When you're going to “alter” or even “forge” historical documents it's important to copy the originals before you destroy them. Then you can produce the copies that you so fortuitously made that, amazingly, say just what you hoped they'd say.
@29 Thanks for those links. Both hilarious. But what I thought funniest was that “kaosenlared” followed the article by a request to subscribe AND that Boudou had the gall to refer to “respect” and “intelligence” when arsieland has neither.
@37 Is it not the case that “cretinaland” is known by that name not so much because it is run by criminal-in-chief Cretina Kirchner but because it is full of cretins. Anybody seen any intelligence in arsie newspapers? Anybody seen any intelligence in such correspondents here as “P-H”, “Twinky”, “J M”, “Gustbury”, “y a n f”, “M Alejandro”, “Malv”, “malen”, “alex_arg” and how many others. One of the reasons it's so easy to lose one's rag on here is that an attempt to have an intelligent discussion with an arsie gets a response on the level of “La la la. Don't like what you're saying. Can't hear. La la la.” Pure, unadulterated gibberish!

@40,44 I'm just confused by the whole thing. He's not even claiming to be some kind of amateur historian who is trying to uncover the truth. He's a militant demanding a scanner so he can scan some papers which are unlikely to be of any great value.

I guess the only interest I have in this whole article is understanding that this is what you look like after suffering from pathological sore-losership. Freud would have suggested that you build bigger and bigger psychological defenses in order to deal with hiding from reality, and all that is no doubt psychologically damaging. Rather than spending time with his family and friends, he's decided to go to Uruguay to find more evidence that ultimately Argentina lost the war, and sat over his scanner he will probably feel quite lost, touching his 'jostling the islanders' and his medal for 'illegal mine laying'.

Being a sore loser really is a sh!t lifestyle choice.

Are they records now in the public domaine or is it just for this Malvinista. Were the British embassy in Montevideo as former interested combatants in the dispute informed? If not a gross insult to normal diplomatic courtesies as they should also have been allowed to scan the records also

As a person closely allied to Uruguay you are rightly raising matters which many of us had not taken into account.

It should be a matter of concern for the people of Uruguay that, apparently, the Embassy of Argentina may have been given illegal access to secret diplomatic archives and the embassy has delegated the access to a private person who may have personal reasons to examine the papers. Also, why would the Embassy supply him with a scanner and a laptop? There is no mention of which Uruguayan Government Department has sanctioned this access.

And, who or what is the Malvinas Forum in Uruguay?

If you really want to know “González” means “Son of Gonzalo”, just as Fernández(i.e. la Kretina) means “Son of Fernando”. This is the Spanish version of the Scandinavian method of giving surnames.

In the case of this “pobrecito” César González Trejo, César is his Christian name, González is his father's first surname and Trejo is his mother's first surname, also his maternal grandfather's first surname. A bit complicated?

@62/56/73, Crossing Beautiful Martian Women with Sheep is the most cogent idea the Malvanistas have come up with in years. I don't think Whitley Streiber and Art Bell ever came up with something that fiendishly diabolical yet so terribly, ~terribly~ sad. Poe call your office.

Is CFK a Beautiful Martian Woman? She does not look human, but she might be beautiful by Martian standards.

After his stay on the Falklands in 1982 maybe Cesar Gonzalez Trejo developed a taste for mating with sheep, and has recommended this to CFK as a way of populating the Falklands via the back door (no not that back door, you filthy minded people).

@29 Interesting comments at the bottom in La Nacion.
“The Falkland Islands are what make the people decide freely. Argentina must worry about and deal more for future development and give its citizens, we are a nation in decline absolute, miserable, corrupt, violent. It is time that the Argentine look inward and start giving the Argentines progress. Enough about the islands.”

The release signed by the Argentine embassy advisor, Victorino Pirillo ends saying that the Malvinas Forum in Uruguay reiterates its support to Argentina’s standing sovereignty claim over the Malvinas, South Georgia and South Sandwich Islands and adjoining maritime spaces.

Nevertheless it is no mystery that the Uruguayan navy and air force with their limited resources helped their Argentine peers.
and the stupid brits thinks they have a chance to retain MAlvinas....AHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA poor deluded ex empire,they are nothing...We SA are the future,...The MAlvineses are NON EXISTANT IS FINISHED!

And yet who has the Islands in the face of all this “support”?


Poor deluded Argentina. The Malvinas are NON EXISTENT.


The UK is rich. And hardly takes notice of Argentina's whinging and whining. It doesn't care and doesn't even fight them at the UN anymore. Argentina's opinion is IGNORED.


Now do you realise how idiotic your posts are. Repeated the same thing ad nauseam only PROVES and SUPPORTS the UK's position.

Undecided people look at your posts and realise Argentineans have no argument.

You bring shame on your country (cue off topic post about some incident in my country...... NOW!)

Sure Uruguay helped Argentina, on very important issues like diplomatic inhibiting the British fleet to go near Buenos Aires and fire on it. But also helped England by, ie, taking care of wounded soldiers. It was a bit weird for an Uruguayan to visit Nepal (home of the Gurkhas) after the war and be treated as an old friend.

Seriously though @ malvineiro1 - I want people like you made accountable to the general public of argentina, for helping your country to fall appart, by your delibarate malevolence toward a group of people who are nothing to do with you, and whos land is nothing to do with you. You are Alien to the Falkland Islands - Alien.

When the day arrives (not too far away) that your country has to go 'cap in hand' to the FIG begging for them to put some buisness their way, - I want cnuts like you made accountable. Made to publicly kneel and apologise to the Falkland Islanders. No not just kneel, - You lot should be prostrate an 'kow-tow' to the Islanders you filth.

PS; Jesus Loves you!

(everyone else thinks your a cnut)

@79 - Malvi

After trying to decipher your post I have come to the conclusion that you are somehow under the delusion that Uruguay is going to attack the British forces on the Falklands, and should they win, you expect them to turn them over to Argentina.

This just shows how deluded, arrogant, insane and WEAK Argentina really is.

Your military is a joke due to your government starving them of investment (by stuffing all the money in their off-shore bank accounts), you want Uruguay to do the fighting, and dying for you. And if they, for some reason did that, you then expect them to hand over the spoils (the Falklands) to Argentina lock, stock, and barrel without getting anything in return.

Insane isn't the word....STUPID is the word. Fortunately not all Argentines are as stupid as you.

@82 ED

Even Jesus has limits on who he can love. Quite frankly he too feels that Mali is a cnut, and a major one at that.

I've never come across any credible evidence that Uruguayan forces helped the Argentines against the UK in 1982. If they did and the person or persons are still alive they should be taken to court on a number of counts.

Ynsere I havent heard anything of this nature either.I think Montevideo was briefly considered as an advanced base by the UK govt instead of Ascension Island but rejected. Whether diplomatic overtures to the ROU govt were made I dont know. But there miust have been some agreement to allow the hospital ships to dock at Montevideo and the onward transmission of the wounded by air from Carrasco or in one case Durazno. The Argentines I think wanted ROU to remain neutral as Montevideo was a convenient exchange point for sending the captured marines and other civilians back to UK
At the time of the invasion some Argentine ships were engaged in routine naval exercises with the ROU navy but whether the ROU Admiralty was told why those ships suddenly retired from the exercises iis a matter of conjecture. At the time ROU was also a military dictatorship and the joint “anti- terrorist” Plan Condor with Argentina, Chile et al was in full operation, so some info may have been exchanged

I believe it is a fact that in connection with Plan Collor, the Uruguayan military were cooperating closely, or even accepting “suggestions” made by the Argentines. Nevertheless, I doubt whether the same was true regarding the Falklands conflict. I remember a gov't decree forbidding recruitment of Uruguayans by both sides, in addition to the official declaration of neutrality. As for public opinion at the time, amongst my friends and acquaintances I only remember taking the Argentine side. Still today I believe a majority of Uruguayans are pro-Falklands, if only to spite the Argentines.
However, the Falklanders should harbour no illusions at about a possible change of heart among the Argentine population, even when and if the present government is overthrown or voted out of office, and never, never believe Argentine promises.

Thanks ysere for your input. Most of the folk up here in the nortth were pro Brit or regarded the conflict in Borges words “two bald men fighting over a comb”
Of course one doesnt believe Argentine promises. The agreement with the Welsh colonists in Patagonia lasted just 35 years before it was abrogated unilaterally. As to the Beagle Channel islands dispute with Chile that was taken to arbitration I think on three occasions all of which upheld the Chilean claim which were rejected by Argentina
It almost came to a choice of war between Chile and the Falklands and the Argentine governmement chose what they thought was the soft option thoroughly underestimating the British response for which they had not planned
